    We all would need unit #;s, and we'd need to have these codes on our side cause its hard to remember all of these, and most of the time, people will end up just saying it, instead of the codes. On top of that we'd need to clear radio, so it's not over cluttered.

    Also, we'd need to make street names for some roads, because its hard knowing where we are when we are on a traffic stop & pursuit.

    We used to have a huge list of codes back in GT5/6 days (@Kitten remembers I'm sure) and we rarely used them. We had less codes in the FH3 club, but same story. I don't see the point in police codes since like Kit said, we'll just say it. (I think 10-4 is all we use, haha.)

    @JR98 said there were street names in the smaller towns, I need to go take a look myself.

    Agreed. In FH3, we just made up our own street names such as "Festival Road" and "Tram Road". Regarding the clear radio situation, as long as the no-BS-chat rule is enforced during police protocol, it should be easy to do that. Of course, the codes are optional, but for those going the extra mile for realism (looking at you @Firehound427 and @JR98), they're here in that case.

    Matter of fact, why don't we all just pick a unit number now? Might as well get it done and over with before the next lobby.

    I'm gonna go with Unit 93, since '93' is at the end of my Gamertag. Saves the headache.

    Yes, I believe all of the small villages have road signs at the end of each street. I know for sure there are ones for each street in Ambleside. I saw Broadway had a few in our chases last night

    I’ll keep using 98 as my unit number

    Unit numbers definitely aren't a bad thing, I'm just not going to keep a formal list of who has reserved what number to avoid people fighting over numbers and having to memorize.

    I’m going to refer to myself as Charlie-Tango One Five. British police call signs tend to use two letters (from the NATO phonetic alphabet), followed by two numbers pronounced separately (“one five”) rather than together (“fifteen”).

    So, Charlie-Tango One Five, signing on...

    So...it's been a long while...but...

    We'll be hosting Test Lobby #2 on Saturday at 3PM EST. We'll also be testing out the Simulation Damage idea. Car Class will be A class, and we'll be doing South Edinburgh. Open Patrol, rules WILL be enforced, so have a good look over the rules. As for livery, if you can find a UK Metro Police Livery for your cop car, that'd be great. If you can make it, LIKE this post.

    It may take some time for me to stop calling the main street "Broadway" :lol:

    I'll reuse unit number 77 if no one objects.

    This is all I've found for Ambleside. The names seem to be reused unfortunately.

    Good job, Kit. Blew the LPS imaginary budget AND we're probably never going to use it. Demoted to police office work!

    Not looking good for tomorrow, regarding participation. It got me thinking, would you guys rather have me move it to today? Like this post if you want me to move the lobby from tomorrow to today. Same time, just today instead.

    We've got barely enough people to host the lobby today. Lobby will probably go up around 2:45PM EST. I imagine we'll get some people that didn't like the post joining along.

    REFERENDUM #5
    I was thinking about prohibiting cops from using open-top/soft-top convertible vehicles to keep things slightly more realistic. Racers would still be allowed to use them.

    Option 1:
    • Prohibit police from using open-top/soft-top convertible vehicles.
    Option 2:
    • Allow the police to use open-top/soft-top convertible vehicles.
    Option 3:
    • None of the above. Please explain what you'd like to see.
    LIKE THIS POST FOR OPTION 1.
